We changed the service layout a little last week and instead of the usual two songs before the sermon, we went with three. The purpose of this was to give the congregation a little more time to engage and worship through the singing part of the service.
I liked how it turned out. I took the opportunity to share a little before singing Pouring It Out For You. We had talked in STORYCHURCH recently about pouring out ourselves into others, but it struck me while I was driving one day, that as God continues to pour into us there’s more of him and less of us. We are essentially being cleaned out, renewed and over time transformed.
So when God pours into you, don’t let it sit there and become stagnant. Pour out into others so that you may be filled up again.
Singing God Of The Redeemed took me right back to our Baptism service a few weeks back when many other great stories were told. I think that song, for me, will always remind me of that day – especially watching my oldest son being baptized.
On Sunday after church, I got the chance to hang out with some new people over pizza. It was awesome to hear their stories and why they decide to keep coming back to STORYCHURCH. That is what makes what we do real and totally worth it.
I love my church.
